Karl Rove

So Karl Rove, El Presidente's chief political operative is apparently the leak behind the expose of Ambassador Joe Wilson's wife, the CIA Operative. I say 'apparently' because it ahsn't proven to be fully true, but quite possibly be true. Now, of course, Bush says if there is a leak in his administration, he wants to know about it and 'appropriate action will be taken'. If it turns out to be definitively Rove, what will that 'appropriate action' be? A slap on the wrist? If it were a Democrat, Republicans would be talking beheading.

But Bush NEEDS Karl Rove, the little Machiavellian who came up with the brilliant (and from the standpoint of getting out the vote, it was) idea of typing the issue of the Defense of Marriage Acts in red meat states as rouse to get out the sheepish Evangelicals to the polls. And while you're penning your hatred of gays, vote for Georgie, why dontcha?

But of course the Bush Administration was on the hunt for Joe Wilson, because he was a critic of the Saddam and Niger memo which if proven to be false, and it was, might have derailed Bush's march toward Baghdad in Operation Avenge Daddy. We all know by now that most of Bush's pre-war pronouncements were falsehoods. But again, in true Machiavellian fashion, the end justifies the means.

So it is fun seeing Mike Mc Clellen suddenly going tight lipped on the Rove situation. Suddenly silence. He is the brother of Mike McClellan, head of the FDA, Bush buddy and the group that bans seniors from excercising free market economics by buying their drugs in Canada, Maybe he should consider joining his mother as she runs for office in the heart of Bushland. Nepotism runs high in this government.

So if it turns out to be true that Karl Rove undermined a CIA operative and put her life at risk, will Herr Rove lose his job? Karen Hughes get ready for a call.

It's only my personal opinion but KKKarl rove is one of the most evil men that ever lived. In my book he makes hitler look like a cub scout.

But then just about all of Gee Dubya's inner circle are pulled from the corporate, military industrial complex "Axis of Evil"

What will rove get? no not canned, not even a slap on thge wrist, probably a public commendation from Boosh himself on national teevee.

Arrrgggh, just the thought of these wingnuts gets my blood pressure in the "red alert" zone

I heard on the news today that the goal of the GOP was to get so involved with the Supreme Court nominees that the Rove thing will get drowned out and forgotten.
